    Cyclone loading ramp failure

    Starting a new thread of my own.

    One of the original ramp failure threads

    Well - I guess I have bragged about the Cyclone giving us so few concerns over the years one too m any times that I finally jinxed myself.

    When we got home from Mifflinberg several weeks ago I noticed a slight crack on the ramp by a hinge. I sealed the crack with tape to keep any water out and figured I would look to see what was up soon.
    Didn't notice anything while at Luray when unloading, but after loading I noticed that the ramp felt spongy. Not wanting to take a chance I left the bike in the garage for Cherry Hill. This is what it looked like during and after taking the bike out last night when we got home.



    The video is taking with the camera laying on the ground looking up, so you are seeing the bike roll out, rear wheel then front wheel.

    So I do have a sticker, stored away in the sticker book

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    So after 14 days with no communication I just got a phone call from a shipping company to deliver the ramp tomorrow.

    Not sure how much hardware is included, but from previous postings it would appear it will be almost complete, except for the seal-gasket.

    I have been trying for over 2 weeks now to get heartland parts to follow through 'properly' with a request of parts I need to get this and another project completed.

    I am not sure why sending a picture of the general area of the part, a detailed picture of the part and a description of the part and questions of how much and how long of a part can you ship get replies that are not relevant !

    I guess I need to get all the 8x10 color glossy photos with a circles and arrows and brief description on the back and send it off to Obie to git-er-dun.

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    Yuuuup...that's what mine looked like when unloading me on a 300lb Honda grom!!

    Mine never cracked bit it was turning into a "bowl" shape by the time it got swapped out.

    I'd be interested to see what failed on your door...

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    My ramp is a lot worse now. I had to try the golf cart to see if it was stable enough for that, and it is not.

    We leave in two weeks for 5 weeks and 5 camps.
    Plan B is already in the works. Figuring a piece of 1/2" or 3/4" plywood and just carriage through bolt it across the the bottom half of the ramp, sandwiching the lower 2 feet.

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    Yeah. I didn't even try the cart or heavier bikes...it was just too soft for that. ...I will say that from when I dropped my trailer off to dealer till when it got fixed was 4 months. Luckily it all got done before I leave for glacier next week...it's night and day difference so far....no flex at all..

    They had cut a section out of my old door and I could see the foam and most innards but I couldent see what the frame was made of or the spacing between the fame...

    They cut a 16x16 section out and I tried to feel around for something/anything...and couldent..this was dead middle of the ramp???....I don't know about you, but that don't seem good to be rated for 1k per wheel?..

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    Well it seems we have a brand new ramp door sitting in my driveway - waiting for the siblings to show up now.

    With any luck I may actually be able to order the weatherstrip and some other parts on Monday.

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    The seal that goes around the perimeter of the ramp.
    Lippert does not supply it, says it is Heartland OEM

    Heartland says they have to get it form the vendor, which would be - Lippert.

    Re: Cyclone loading ramp failure

    Can you line your new ramp with diamond plate to help with load distribution?
